CapBiz A.M.: Another way to get local business news

June 29, 2014

You get a lot of unsolicited advice when you are an editor.

Much of it is about coverage: Could you do more of this, less of that.

But I’ve been surprised how often people have suggestions on how they get the news.

There are newspaper readers, people who like to check in on the headlines from their office computers, and others who prefer to cozy up with a tablet. There are also those — and their numbers are growing quickly — who want to read the news on their phones.

For many, it’s all of the above. They want their news when and where they want it.

We hear you.

Four years ago when we launched Capital Business, we did so as a weekly newspaper, to be delivered with your copy of The Washington Post. Now, Capital Business stories also appear in The Post, on the Web and on your mobile device via The Washington Post app (you’ll find us grouped with the Business content).

Recently, we began offering another outlet.

We call it CapBiz A.M., a daily e-mail newsletter that rounds up the local business highlights of the past 24 hours. In addition to the news we report, we’ll link to stories found elsewhere on the Web, serve up a little advice, tell you what’s on tap in Washington and point to a social media favorite or two.

As the name suggests, this e-mail should land in your inbox Monday through Friday just as you start your day, a quick primer on what’s going on around you. And the beauty of the newsletter is that we do the work hoovering up local business stories and send them to any device capable of receiving e-mail.

To sign up just go to our Web site at www.capbiz.biz, and scroll down the right side of the page until you see “Get Business Newsletters and Alerts.” Check the Capital Business box and hit subscribe.

I’m eager to hear what you think of the e-letter, and to hear your suggestions for other ways we can better serve up our journalism.

Ours is a work in progress, and change is a constant.

Dan Beyers is the founding editor of Capital Business, The Washington Post’s go-to source for news about the region’s business community.
